A registry has been kept by Harry Eisenhauer for many years and was printed in a 2008 CPMS newsletter.

A registry recently appeared on the Wiki site along with images of many of the notes.

The original registry kept by Harry Eisenhauer was only for the DC-13a "Ones Inward", as this note appeared to be a lot scarcer then the DC-13b and DC-13c.

The Carlton catalogue states:

The 2009 CPMS register provides a listing of 1898 $1 Dominion notes with "Ones Inward", DC-13a.  As oif the time of publication of this catalogue 114 privately owned examples were recorded.  DC-13b and DC-13c are considerably more plentiful, but we are aware of no attempt to compile a census of these varieties.

I agree that a registry for the DC-13b and DC-13c is of minimum value, but the small number of DC-13a notes seen over the years begs the question; "What happened to the 15,200,000 printed ?"

It's a shame that so much time and effort is being wasted to collect info on such common notes.  There are a number of rare chartered notes for which no register has been published (at least not in the past 20 years!).  But i guess they have to fill the Newsletter some way...

What's next?  A register of 1923 shinplasters?  GMAB.

ACTUALLY FYI, the current WIKI register for the 1898 DC-13 notes was created by me for tracking and reference purposes (since I am actively building a DC-13 set). Since I had the information I thought I would create a WIKI register for it so that anyone else that is interested in them could have access to the information.. So for me it wasn't a waste of time nor is it intended to be used for ulterior financial purposes.
